soapbox   Leave a comment

okay, I have to say this…….

One would think that the congresswoman, was the only person who was shot and injured a week ago in Arizona.
I am so freaking sick of the news discussing every little thing about her.
And while yes it is amazing she survived, SHE ISN’T THE ONLY ONE WHO WAS SHOT OR INJURED AND WHAT ABOUT THOSE WHO WERE KILLED!?

ugh.
I won’t even watch the news any more because she is all they talk about.

And while maybe there isn’t a lot of news to share, I don’t know any of the names of the other people who were injured.
Nor do I know anyone else who was killed (their names) besides the eight year old Christina.

Ugh!!!!

sometimes the news is more than I can bear!

playing in the snow   Leave a comment

no not really, I really wasn’t playing in the snow.
I was shoveling and putting down ice melt.
I was out there ninety minutes today.
Three hours yesterday and alas….I must confess I am quite tired.
the back is aching as usual too.
Sigh……

it is a good tired though, if you know what I mean.
like I had a really great work out.
šŸ™‚
now I just need to thaw out a bit and continue on with the day.
All my cleaning that I did yesterday will be destroyed today with the kids coming back.
But that is job security right?
šŸ˜¦

not that I am complaining really………if they didn’t come back I wouldn’t have anything to do.
So…they need to make things dirty so I have a job.

sad but true……

on another note my sister told me thatĀ afternoon moviesĀ are now $9 a person.
YIKES!!!
I can’t see myself going to many movies with prices like that.
It was $7.50 so I’m not sure when they raised prices but alas…….like everything else, prices keep rising.

Happy Tuesday!
